The 2013 Best of Innovations Honorees will be announced Nov. 12 at CEA’s New York Press Preview and showcased at the 2013 International CES. Owned and produced by CEA, the 2013 CES is scheduled Jan. 8-11, 2013, in Las Vegas.
The industry-recognized annual competition honors outstanding design and engineering across 29 consumer electronics categories.
Two new product categories were added to the 2013 awards program: Tech for a Better World and Accessible and Universal Design Technologies. Tech for a Better World recognizes technologies that share a common goal and the ability to impact the world in a positive way, either domestically, or around the globe, CEA said. Accessible and Universal Design Technologies focuses on technologies that have innovative features that enable ease of use by anyone, including, but not limited to, seniors and people with disabilities, regardless of cognitive ability, hearing, mobility, visual or other impairments.
The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards give consumer technology manufacturers and developers an opportunity to have new products judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade press. The Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards program is open to all companies, regardless of CES exhibitor status. Products entered must debut for sale in U.S. retail outlets or on the Internet between April 1, 2012, and April 1, 2013. Submit your product here.
